I have heard that there is a https patch for lynx, where can I find the patch and how would I install it? I am using a mac 10.8, I looked an GitHub and I could not find anything.

Modern versions of Lynx – starting with version 2.8.5pre1, released in 2004 – incorporate SSL capability natively, without requiring a source-level patch.

If you use Homebrew, you can install such a version via brew install lynx; if you don't use Homebrew, use Homebrew.
